Psonic X Touhou (stylized its logo as PSONIC × 東方) is a future competitive arcade-style crossover fighting video game that will be developed by Psonic, in collaboration with Team Shanghai Alice (particularly ZUN), Elecbyte, Epic Games and Eighting and published by the same organization in both Asia and South America, NIS America in both North America and Europe and Taito Corporation in Japan. It consists many characters from both Psonic's indie video games and Touhou's doujin game franchise. It is the original entry of Psonic's Crossover series or Parallel Universe. And as a cross-platform software, it will be released for consoles (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Steam Machine, Wii U and Nintendo Switch), handhelds (Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and SMACH Z), mobile devices (Android, iOS and Windows Phone), PCs (including Steam version) and arcade game system called PAS-1 (Psonic Arcade System). The creation of this game will be based on the online crowdfunding website Kickstarter and incorporated heavy input from the public to bring it to life. Also, it is the only game to have East vs East and boys instead of girls outside the Touhou series.

GameplayEdit

Psonic X Touhou similarly resembles the early Touhou fighting games, M.U.G.E.N, Capcom vs. SNK series, Marvel vs. Capcom series and the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us in gameplay using 2.5-rendered graphics on a 2D combat arena, realistic 3D-rendered environment, has unique character designs inspired from cartoons, comics and anime and is considered the spiritual successor to Touhou vs. Capcom. In the game, players select a team of two to four characters to attempt knocking their opponents down before the time extends in tag team mode or make it default in turn-based mode like in M.U.G.E.N. It features similar tag team and turn-based game mechanics along with new methods of playing designed to make the game more accessible to the new players. Specially, it is rumored that many of these characters even have special conversations they say to each other during match. The special moves are referred to Special Cards, the Super Moves or Hyper Combos for Level 1 power stock are known to be Super Cards and the Level 3 Ultimate Attacks are commonly known as Ultra Cards, which are similar to Ultra Combo from Street Fighter IV series as well as Super Moves from the console versions of the first Injustice game. Also like Injustice 2, the game has role-playing game elements that can allow you to customize characters with experience you earned and important upgrades in both single-player and multiplayer and loot grabbing of Hero Credits as its main currency after each match.

Arcade modeEdit

You can beat certain opponents in 7 battles before you face the final boss comparable to Abyss from Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes called Overlimits, an enormous alien super weapon that mysteriously awakens and threatens to devour the Outside World entirely. So it's up to the heroes of both Psonic and Touhou universes to stop this destructive threat from the galaxy before it is too late.

PlotEdit

Since the peaceful outside world of the 21st century has suffered few wars between 2010s and 2020s (like in the events of 20XX series, War on Terror and with the terrorist faction Blackfoot), people were working for the modern times in the presence of one deity and the United Nations, a main world organization. Sometimes, there is something mysterious and dark around the global edges that the whole investigation is not over yet, by the time of an alien expedition, which the extraterrestrial creatures visited from the real world history including the non-myths.

However, in some events of 20XX, it was rumored that the Global Peacekeeping League (a military and police government and subsidiary of the United Nations) has detected a mysterious being from outer space. Before their report, it will begin to rise up the whole re-visitation but taking a slow moment for a long time to come sooner or with something futuristic. Of course, after that, many people are experiencing a serious case somewhere on earth by watching several news reports in other locations, most probably in Tycoon City as the game's primary target with a special military term RECOM (a phenomenon between "Resistance" and "Command" words).

While the case is going on, Engr. Joe Dell of Recom Hero Squad has a plan for the help of other engineers to build a time portal, with a dimension between reality and fantasy. If it was created, there is something strange that the citizens of Tycoon City are living in currently outside world now. Besides, the only targeted fantasy is in Gensokyo, a remote place where been set in incidental times of Gregorian calendar once in a while.

As the future moves on, it finally comes to introduce itself a powerful alien superweapon named Overlimits, derived from its alien homeworld Xenoria. It begins with a disgrace to humanity to take a control of Xenorians and make the outside world dominated for a new extraterrestrial life, most especially other aliens. So people need help and Engineer Joe has another plan to his fellow members of R.H.S that the inspirational military mission has started immediately. Then they summon people from several locations (particularly a destination from Gensokyo to the modern Outside World following the inspiration of Urban Legend in Limbo), give them a special chance and prepare a surrounded fighting tournament with a lot of battles in order to be prepared stronger before the forceful resistance against Overlimits, also those who came from both the future and the past.
